I have this week spent one night at this B&B and I found it very comfortable and homely. I was greeted by a friendly and helpful member of staff who gave me all the info I needed. My first impression of the place was very positive--light and airy with very tasteful decor.
My room was very comfortable and adequate, comfortable bed, room very clean and very adequate en-suite.I was a little nervous at first about the noise factor as the room was at the front of the house overlooking very busy Newport Road, but I found thta this was not a problem and I slept like a log.
My only slight grouses were that the bin had not been emptied, the shelf in the bathroom over the washbasin was very low, thus making washing and teeth cleaning difficult and there was no chair in the room which would have been a great help.,but I have to weigh this up against the price I paid.
The location is excellent. There is a bus stop almost outside if required and shos very close.
I will certainly come back here as I really enjoyed my mini=stay.

I stayed at the Avala for a weekend whilst working in Cardiff. The Rugby 6 Nations match was on so booking a hotel in Cardiff was either difficult or expensive.

Having scoped out the very expensive usual suspects (I normally stay at Premier Inn) I found the Avala via a search engine, the website looked good and the rooms looked comfy. I wasn't disappointed, my single room was compact but enough for one person, had everything I needed and was warm and comfortable (once i'd turned the radiator up).

I didn't sample the breakfast as I had to be out before it was served but think it's a reasonable price for a continental.

If I head back to Cardiff work or pleasure the Avala will be my first port of call for accomodation.

stayed here on a girls weekend recently, we found the beds to be comfy and the staff helpful. we had good qulity tvs, nice refreshments and even a microwave in our 'louge' room. we had the top floor rooms which was more like having our own cosy appartment. the hotel seemed quiet although there were many other residents, so you wont get disterbed by other residents in the night. good value for money. all in all a good hotel, would stay again : )
